Wine description

“It has a very focused, quite “contained” bouquet of mandarin, marmalade and incense that gently unfolds in the glass. The palate is very well-balanced on the entry, the acidity neatly offsetting the swathe of viscous fruit: mango, papaya, marmalade and quince. This is very focused and harmonious with a long fig and raisin finish that remarkably retains freshness and tension. Outstanding. “ – Neil Martin, 95 points (2013)
